TV Documentary and DVD-CD Compilation

NASHVILLE, October 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Steve Siler, producer of the recently released "Somebody's Daughter: A Journey to Freedom from Pornography" DVD-CD compilation, and Christian recording artist John Mandeville, once addicted to pornography and featured in the multimedia project, are available for interviews during "Pornography Awareness Week" Oct. 26 - Nov. 2, as designated by The National Coalition for Protection of Children and Families.


According to recent surveys, nearly 60 percent of Christian men and 37 percent of pastors admit to struggling with pornography.  Thirty-five percent of women also admit to the addiction.


"Somebody's Daughter" was produced to shed light on how the $13.3 billion pornography industry is plaguing those who profess Christianity, and to promote healing and deliverance from the growing epidemic.


Michael Leahy, president of Bravehearts and author of "Porn Nation," said, "I've seen everything that's out there on the issue of sexual addiction, and nothing comes close to this. A real gem. Ideally suited for church."


"Somebody's Daughter" features a television documentary detailing the lives of three men and one couple active in Christian ministry who struggle with and overcome addiction to pornography.  Produced by Music for the Soul, a not-for-profit Christian ministry committed to providing life-changing healing through music and song, the release also includes compelling and therapeutic songs, illustrative music videos and personal vignettes.  Study guide curriculum for individuals, counselors and churches also is available.


The concept for "Somebody's Daughter" was born from a song of the same name written by Mandeville and Siler, founder and director of Music for the Soul, after Mandeville revealed to Siler his struggles with pornography. After attending a meeting for sex addicts, the two men wrote the song to illustrate that women should be viewed as a creation of a Holy God, and as a starting point for Mandeville's healing.


"Somebody's Daughter" recently won a "Redemptive Storyteller Award "at the 2008 Redemptive Film Festival.


"Somebody's Daughter" is scheduled to air Nov. 30 and Dec. 7 on the ION Television Network (formerly PAX TV).  The documentary also is slated to air on INSP, Faith TV and "It's Time for Herman & Sharron."


Siler has had more than 400 of his songs recorded in the Christian market and won the 2000 Dove Award for Inspirational Song of the Year with "I Will Follow Christ." His best known songs are "Circle of Friends" and "Not Too Far From Here."
